When the US Mint introduced the Proof Gold American Eagles, the coins were only available in a 1 oz gold weight. The 1987 issue year brought the arrival of the 1/2 oz Proof Gold Eagle. In 1988, the 1/4 oz and 1/10 oz Proof Gold Eagles were released. From 1987 to 1993, the Proof Gold American Eagle fractional coins were struck at the Philadelphia Mint. Since 1994, the coins have been struck at the West Point Mint.
All of the 1/10 oz Proof Gold American Eagle coins available to you here today include a PF69 certification. This indicates the coins are near-perfect specimens with full, original mint luster and a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. Minuscule contact marks or hairlines are the only flaws you’ll notice and are limited to areas outside the primary focal points.
The obverse of Proof Gold American Eagles features the image of Lady Liberty. This strong, confident vision of Liberty was created in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens and originally used on the $20 Gold Double Eagle.
On the reverse of the 1/10 oz Proof Gold American Eagle is a family of bald eagles. In this design from Miley Busiek, you’ll notice a nest with a group of hatchlings inside. Just outside the nest on a perch is a female eagle guarding the group, while a male eagle flies overhead.
